Run, Run,Run


H oly Moly. I started looking in some archives that are deeper than the rest. Boy, did I find surprising pictures. Pictures that I not only forgot about, but were core parts of some interesting projects. This is one of them. This is a bull. Slow your roll.. She — the women — is aContinue reading “Run, Run,Run”

Just Another Day


A major discussion took place in my brain. It was along the lines of save it or hold it. Knowing that I would probably lose it within my archives. Rather than hold it, I published it. Obviously, it’s just another day in New Orleans. No. No. No. It’s Halloween. The very night of the holidayContinue reading “Just Another Day”

You Want It Brighter


L et’s talk about street photography. These days most new photographers claim the genre of street photography. Most of them don’t know what they are doing. They don’t work close enough. They work from behind. They work from across the street. They often shoot from the hip so that their subjects don’t see them. IContinue reading “You Want It Brighter”

Road Color


Y esterday’s post was a bit bleak, but it was honest. Authentic, as we say today. We saw an example of it on Thursday night, when the January 6 Committee laid the insurrection at Trump’s feet. And, at his feet it will stay. I’m sure he’ll be hopping mad. Too bad. It was an exerciseContinue reading “Road Color”

Another Time


Ten days on. If this were a sensible year we’d be off to see the Krewe of Barkus today. Sometimes the dogs come along. Sometimes they’d actually be entered officially. But, there is no Krewe of Barkus this year. There are no Mardi Gras parades. Bourbon Street will be closed. Bars will be closed. They’llContinue reading “Another Time”

Carnival


I thought I would do something different today. We, in New Orleans, have started our celebrations for Carnival.  So, that’s in my head. It’s also a way to get out of a dark place. The one that is influenced by the real world as opposed to the fantasyland that we live in on a daily basis.Continue reading “Carnival”

New Orleans… A Story


New Orleans stories. Some I have to dredge up from deep in my memory. Others not so much. This is one of the others. I was walking down the street in Treme. I was headed to a second line. I didn’t know there was a second line that started earlier. A jazz funeral. As IContinue reading “New Orleans… A Story”

Best Twelve


I didn’t quite make it. Not because I couldn’t stand it. Instead, I realized that “best of” collections are best done before the turn of the year. Not on the first, or second of January when I said I would return. Instead, I’m back. Sort of. On December 31, 2018. Tomorrow is January 1, 2019.Continue reading “Best Twelve”

A Little Late


This a little late. I know. I know. I posted this on Instagram and Facebook. I realized that most of you hadn’t seen it. That was too bad because I really like this picture, especially in black and white. To be honest, I overlooked it. In color it didn’t do much for me. Given thatContinue reading “A Little Late”
